What does it mean to be a lesbian?

To be a woman and be attracted to the same gender


Homosexuality is romantic or sexual attraction or behavior between members of the same sex or gender. The opposite of homosexuality is heterosexuality. Some 5-10% of the population is estimated to be homosexual. It used to be that gays and lesbians were sent to see a psychiatrist so they could be 'cured'. Thankfully, this is no longer the case. The term 'homosexual' comes from the Greek 'homo' meaning 'same' and Latin 'sexualis', 'gender'. Persons attracted to both genders are called bisexual.
